Monterey & Carmel Day Trip

Day Trip

***Overview content below***

Monterey, California’s capitol under Spanish and Mexican rule, is one of the oldest cities in California and has some of the best preserved historic buildings from California’s colonial period. It was the home of the mythic Zorro, the setting for John Steinbeck’s “Cannery Row”, and the site of the signing of California’s state constitution. On this tour, you’ll drive down the beautiful California coast to visit two popular California coastal towns with beautiful settings and quaint and historic buildings.

In Monterey, spend some time exploring the town, perhaps trying some seafood or trying to spot sea otters in the bay, or else visit the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium, and see penguins, fish, and a 10 meter tall kelp forest aquarium. Then continue on through scenic 17-Mile Drive through Pacific Grove, famous for its Cypress trees, and the famous golf course Pebble Beach. You’ll end up in Carmel, an artist’s community filled with art galleries, shops, and amazing ocean views, as well as one of the oldest missions in California.
